The clock is ticking for Doctor Who landing on the PlayStation 3. Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is coming soon, featuring timey-wimey gaming thrills pitting you against the Daleks, Cybermen and Silurians.

In the game you take contol of both the Doctor and companion River Song, voiced by Matt Smith and Alex Kingston, to unravel the mystery of The Eternity Clock. Players sneak, run, swing and jump across rooftops and fog-shrouded London streets, heading "into the belly of the beast" to defeat the nefarious plans of the new-look Cybermen, Daleks and Silurians, as well as the Silence. Er... what were the Silence supposed to be again?

The trailer offers little clue to the latest travails of the Time Lord, aside from telling us that the Tardis is at the heart of the maelstrom. Ruined London streets and what looks like a mission into a vast Dalek spaceship have got us a wee bit excited about the game: Allons-y! Er, we mean, Geronimo!

There's no sign of Amy Pond in the trailer -- sorry dads -- but you do see plenty of River Song. Press play below to see the action:

There are a bunch of options for Gallifreyan gaming, including cartoony online game Worlds in Time, iPhone and iPad puzzler The Mazes of Time, and various interactive episodes.

You can also play Evacuation Earth on the Nintendo DS and Return to Earth on the Wii.

For all your gaming goodness, check out our button-bashing buddies at GameSpot UK. They may not wear bow ties very often but they all look great in a fez.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock materialises on the PS3 and PS Vita via the PlayStation Network in March 2012, with a PC version to follow later.
